Jonathan Franzen

When: Tue., Oct. 28, 7:30 p.m. 2014

Butler’s Visiting Writers Series can be counted on for at least one name-brand headliner per season. And this fall it’s Franzen, the Illinois-born “great American novelist” (remember that TIME cover?) responsible for four long novels (1988’s The Twenty-Seventh City to 2010’s Freedom), three collections of non-fiction (most recently 2012’s Farther Away) and a couple translations, including 2013’s The Kraus Project, featuring essays by the turn-of-the-century Austrian gadfly and journalist Karl Kraus.

Price: Free.
